The Show's ethos is to support UK professional and aspiring makeup artists and to give them the opportunity to meet and interact with the best of the business and to also learn from the Masters the latest techniques and products available to pursue their careers, at the same time opening up the experience to international makeup artists. In doing so we aim to provide a forum whereby professional makeup artists can express opinions or float ideas on how they see the industry progressing and in doing so, help formulate the best of the industry positives for future growth.

We do not offer an overly packed environment of non makeup industry consumers hoping to shop for a cheap deal but provide a rich environment of liked minded people from the makeup world.

To further support the industry, we are offering a number of smaller booth spaces to help company's who previously could not afford to exhibit in the past participate in the show.

A limited number of VIP tickets for ‘Guest’ invitations will be provided to exhibitors who take a 6m x 6m or larger booth space, at no extra cost and printed with the specific company logo if required. (Logos must be provided by August 1st at the latest to incorporate printing and delivery schedules.)

Marketing opportunities are available via the UMAe website, in the Trade Show programme and around the venue for exhibitors to promote their brand.

Portfolio reviews

Work Shops
Another new feature we have introduced having listened to feedback from artists, is for access to more "hands on" experience. With this in mind we have taken space to enable exhibitors to provide interactive work shop experiences at no extra charge. Slots are allocated on a "first come" basis and workshops must allow artists to interact with the demonstrators.

This year we will have 3 dedicated areas for exhibitors to provide tutorials over the 2 day show period. Times will be divided into 45 min slots, booked on a "first come" basis and details must be provided in advance, (No later than September 25th) The show organiser will have the discretion to change times where necessary to ensure the smooth running of the event.
